Solar photovoltaic plays a significant role in sustainable development, decarbonization of the energy sector, and for clean energy transition. The enhancement mechanism of photovoltaic conversion efficiency and the development of innovative methods and strategies for the improvement of the performance of the solar PV system are crucial to making PV technologies cost-competitive against conventional and renewable power systems.
This Special Issue aims at the dissemination of research results on state-of-the-art science and technology related to the improvement of the efficiency and enhancement of the power output of solar photovoltaics. The potential topics of Special Issue include but are not limited to:
- Bifacial solar PV technology
- Hybrid solar PV/thermal energy systems
- Concentrated solar PV
- New material for solar PV
- Thermal management of solar PV
- Solar PV enhancement using nanofluids
- MPPT control for solar PV systems
- Solar PV tracking system
- Soling and cleaning of solar modules
- Hybrid solar PV systems
- Modeling and simulation for the enhancement of power output of solar PV
- Design, performance analysis, and optimization of solar PV systems
- Solar PV optimization methods

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
